VALLEY OF SHADOWS the enfamous Sandhan valley , one of the greatest canyons in the splendid Sahyadri. The gushing rain water carved this striking ravine to a 200 ft deep. Sandhan valley is located on the western side of the beautiful Bhandardara region, near Samrad village. The valley is surrounded with mighty Alang, Madan and Kulang, Ratangad, Ajoba & Kalsubai mountain range.
The brilliant and deep narrow rock floored ravine is located between the two high walls of mountain range. The gorge narrows at places less than 3 ft and sun rays doesn’t touch the floor; leads to light and shadow play in the entire valley.
